Ebay machine

I'm guessing it's a bought-in mech.

Either SEGA/Mills or Watling.

Most probably one of the many Peter Simper electro's looking at the cabinet style and their scenic views printed in the glasses.

Not the most exciting machines much like early ACE basic electro games.

Not working, the cabinet needs repair as the base has virtually gone so in need of some TLC, they can prove to be quite a challenge if suffering bad faults.

Managed to get the ugly machine up and running, give it a clean, put new 10p mech in, changed it from 25p token to pay out coins and now need to build a new cabinet, plays and pays as it should so well worth the 26 quid to save it.

Looking much better now, Apart from that dated inspection label are there any clues as to which manufacturer built it?

Not a clue Ron, the reel motor is unusual to me it's a pear or tear drop shape, the only name on it is on the reels which is Wyvern a place in Plymouth where I bought it.

My thoughts were Peter Simper as they had been going for many years and the date makes my think could be one of their earlier electro machines.

These were bit later but you can see resemblances.

I'm starting to see the PS 'look', now you have it all cleaned-up.

What coin would it have been on originally? It's good to see a surviving pre-decimal E/M machine.

Edit:- Love the Fliers. Thanks.

I think it would have been sixpence / half crown or 10p / 50p

Most early electro machines did start on pre decimal coins. The old 3d , 6d and Shilling for credit, The 2 Shilling (Florin)and the Half Crown (two shillings and 6d ) for change

When decimal currency started, The Shilling was converted to the big 5p coins, the 2 shilling to the big 10p in 70s electro machines.

Blimey, another of my former employers gets a mention - MAM Inn Play. 

After leaving Bell Fruit, I did a TOPS course in computer engineering. At the end of the course, there wasn’t much happening in the way of computer engineering opportunities, so I landed a job with MAM, as a field service engineer.
